Q: Mary from Lancaster, PA asks:
What provisions are available between divorced and/or separated people?
A:The Affordable Care Act only applies to individuals in terms of the mandate. So it doesn’t matter if a person is single, married, divorced, or separated, he/she is required to have a qualified health plan by January 1, 2014. A person can either obtain an individual plan that only covers his/herself or one that covers the family as well.
